The Obamas Trade Escalating Twitter Threats With Prince Harry And Queen Elizabeth II

Source: Huffington Post

Relations between the British royal family and the American royal family president and first lady of the United States are cordial. Friendly, even. They pose for photos, have dinner parties together, and share similar views surrounding mental health awareness. They even touch.

Or they used to, that is.

This spat has the potential to cause a rift in relations as large as the pond that separates these two nations.

It all started with a threat from Michelle Obama, who grabbed her husband, put on her best tough guy face and sent Prince Harry a bone-chilling message:

This is kind of awesome. I'm going to miss the Obama's being in the White House.

6. Very cute and funny exchange!

The Obama's are just too cool. Can you even imagine the thin skinned Trump having a lighthearted laugh over twitter? He'd probably be launching ICBMs into the royal palace.

He thinks they did wrong in WW2.

10. Or...

A funny, tongue in cheek, exchange of videos to help promote The Invictus Games for wounded veterans. Prince Harry has been the driving force behind this and the Obamas (Michelle in particular) have backed it to the hilt.

Good on all concerned.

15. Sorry

 

When I see the power elite having such a jolly good time it bristles my Anarcho-Syndicalist tendencies. You know. To smash the state?
